    My MBP 17" arrived today. And I am curious if others have the following problem. The screen gets really fuzzy (as in unviewable), sometimes it sticks, other times it onlyflickers. Well i think i figured out where the problem is orignating after i placed the laptop on my lap. you see, when my hand is on the bottom of the computer, the screen is fine. if i don't press as hard, then it starts to get fuzzy, if i take my hand totally away, then the screen ia totally messed up fuzzy. Anyone know the problem?

    I've been reading the forum and i see other problems with these screens. this concerns me greatly.

    though everything else loosk fine. when my screen isn't fuzzy (which yes i will take in to fix unless someone here knows how to fix it), the colors and everything looks fine. however, things look blurry unless I wear my glasses. Now, you may think "well duh" the thing is, I never had to wear glasses in teh past to view a laptop or any computer. is this a problem? whatever is right in front of my face is focused, things on the side appear very slightly out of focused unless i wear my glasses.

    well anyway, i hope someone can help with above concerns.

    Sounds like you might have a real problem with the flickering. Otherwise, the effect you might be seeing is probably what I see on mine. It's a very slight "brighter" area directly in front of my head. If I move my head, it follows. It is very slight, though. Reminds me of a projection TV. Not sure of the cause, but that's the way these are. Again, on mine, it is a very slight effect. If I'm just using the machine, I don't notice - it looks very even.

    well i know the flickering fuuzy screen is not normal. I mean it gets bad and obviously it's broken. I just htought maybe somehere knew what was thr problem and maybe it was something i could fix. but i live in NYC so i guess i'll make the treck to Soho or 5th Ave apple stores. everything else really looks fine. People have been complaining but itseems fine to me. I plan to do video editing, but you know, a laptop is a laptop and they always have those lcd issues when angles are concerned. the problem with htis one is very slight. i think the colors look good. if there is a problem with branding, hopefully it's a software fix. if not, but it's a hardware issue, well i have apple care for three years if you know what i mean. i really like the widescreen though. very nice.

    This is my first apple. well second really. my first was the Macintosh from the 1980s. i guess it was the first generation iMac when you consider the fact the cpu and monitor are in the same structure:D

    But the Apple Store i must go to get this fixed. which sucks.
